Txu energy has provided me service for the past 4 years here in north texas, and was fairly decent till the past 8 months.
what gets me is i heat with gas. and for some reason which txu cannnot or won;t explain is my electric bill this past winter in 2 times higher than my summer bill when i use 2 A C units,i called txu a month ago complaining about the excessive over charge since i live or a small fixed income. and i spend many hours trying to cut down monthly expenditures / exspenses. my last 3 bills exceeded over $220-$300 pr month and all i have in use if a refridgerator and a cook stove which i use less than 4 hours a week along with a T V and cd player that is seldom if ever on the t v is used maybe 3 hours a day and only use not over 2 lights about 2 hours a nite.
and even my hotwater heater is Gas so that eliminates that for usage,i have 1 yard light that comes on maybe 6 hours a nite now what gets me is my electric bill in the summer was only $80-$126 pr month with 2 A C units which i turn off every fall and winterize the house. i had txu come out and test the meter since i do have prior experience working with other electric companies and doing meter installs and line repair and also have very exstensive knowledge in appliance repairs and thier usage pr KWH as well as amp load for unit well they came out alright! the service tech was nice but then what else would you expect when their ripped you a new A0hole in utility cost?he told me that my meter was within thier standards and that he didnt suspect the meter to be at fault? now! let me explain this much i do know have a veyr wide background in engineering and tech design applications accross the board in 11 different fields of engineering and usage. i know! that these so call enegery efficeint meters they install are controlled by sattelite! so in essence i done some research into there design app's and ability and founf that not only can they read your usage by sattlite? and turn your meter off and on at will!! but they also can ( MODIFY) / controll what the meter read's and make it read (EXACTLY) what they want anytime they want! in most normal cases as a rule of thumb a single person uses on the AVERAGE between 18-28 KW pr hour! if even that!and a family of 2-4 uses approx 22-38 KWH in 92% of the homes today as a rule! now here we got TXU showing i use again more!! electric now than i did in the summer with less applainces running and showing / making my meter show over 42-45- kwh pr day!
now !! let me say this they may pull this kinda thievery crap on laymen people and the general public ! but for them to pull this crap on someone that is actually wise to their game and their proceedure is down right assinine and i know that if enough people got involved to file a class action suit against TXU period this type of bullsh*t
process would cease! i know what i know!! cause i use to work in areas with ex employers that have done the exact same crap to boost the end of the year quota's as well as generate bonuses from the customers that use their service to give those greedy Fat b**tards thier end of the year bonus and raises! this just proves that not only our goverment as well as stock brokers and banks are sticking it deep in our back side .. so is TXU! thing is with this so called sattelite control sh*t they have going on they will hard to catch or stop!cause all they got to do is puch a button on a keyboard to put the meters back in the correct action of flow they should have been in all along! and then boom they can keep ph*cking us as customers!
